Description Sergey Mironov 2010-09-19 19:54:02 UTC
After lots of updates, sftp (and fuse sshfs) stoped working. ssh worked well.

During investigation I found an article

which helps. The problem was in server's ~/.bashrc: bind* statements make sftp ill. 

My current ssh configuration:
client (x86):
[I--] [  ] dev-libs/openssl-0.9.8o (0)
[I--] [  ] net-misc/openssh-5.5_p1-r2 (0)

server (x86_amd64):
[I--] [  ] dev-libs/openssl-0.9.8o (0)
[I--] [  ] net-misc/openssh-5.3_p1-r1 (0)

Reproducible: Always

It's nothing to do with any (run time or compile time configuration) file Gentoo installs, so how could we possibly fix it?
Comment 2 Sergey Mironov 2010-09-20 12:19:41 UTC
Maybe warn user while installing ssh. Anyway, its better to have bug record, since such problem can waste a lot of time to debug.

We couldn't begin to fathom we could figure out how to contemplate setting up ways to tell users what past square wheels not to reinvent.
